La Liga line ups: Barcelona – Levante

Ernesto Valverde has opted to rest Lionel Messi and Sergio Busquets for tonight's La Liga visit of Levante – ahead of Wednesday's Champions League semi final against Liverpool.

A win against Paco Lopez's side would confirm Barcelona's league title defence, but the former Athletic Bilbao boss is confident they can do so, without their star man.

From the side that won at Alaves in midweek, Samuel Umtiti is replaced by Clement Lenglet, with Arthur and Ivan Rakitic in for Carles Alena and Busquets.

Levante recall defender Antonio Luna, Ruben Rochina – who has served a one game ban – and Moses Simon,

BARCELONA: Ter Stegen, Semedo, Pique, Lenglet, Alba, Rakitic, Arthur, Vidal, Coutinho, Suarez, Dembele

SUBS: Cillessen, Roberto, Umtiti, Alena, Malcom, Busquets, Messi
